Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Audi Q8 is a two-row SUV that radiates sportiness and luxuriousness.

Pros
Athletic enough to satisfy enthusiasts,
refined enough to coddle passengers,
great mix of luxury and technology.

Cons
Lower touchscreen can divert attention,
feels sluggish in city driving,
people-and-cargo room sacrificed to style.

Audi's big, aggressive Q8 is interesting and clever, with a side order of *whoa*

Pros
Interesting,
tech-laden SUV flagship that’s more practical and useful than it looks

Cons
It’s not exactly subtle. Or cheap

topgear.com

Pros
Great space
Superlative performance versions
Good tech
Handsome interior
Good safety scorecard

Cons
Conservative style
Eye-watering price tag on top trims
Not very fuel-efficient
Some extras are headscratchers

Only minor changes for 2019.The 2019 Cadillac Escalade is a full-size luxury SUV that has a lot of capability and creature comforts, along with a few drawbacks. Its pricing is defined by four trim levels, of which any can be paired with four-wheel drive. Most of the available options are offered as stand-alone options rather than being part of packages.

PROS
Strong V8 engine is never at a loss for power
Robust towing capacity
Cabin remains quiet regardless of road conditions

CONS
Less refined ride and seat comfort than other luxury SUVs
Low handling limits and heavy steering
High, uneven cargo floor makes loading objects difficult

Comfortable seats
Confident towing ability
Good ride quality

Cons
Doesn’t hide its truck roots well
Guzzles premium unleaded
Gauche style not for all
Eye-opening price
